Title: Nanny Bodyguard (Bachelor Bodyguards #5)
Author: Lisa Childs
Stars: 3 1\2 out of 5
|I am giving it 3 1\2 Stars out of 5|
Since this is the first book I have read in the series I can only go off from what I read and not the series as a whole.
First off Nikki Payne is just too winy for my taste and her endless complaining about not being like her brothers, settling down with romance and marriage seem to fill the first half of the book to the point of turning this reader off. The attraction was completely sexual so when it turned into something more I couldn't get behind it.
The backstory made me think that Nikki already proved herself so the fact her brothers were over protective was a little took much to deal with.
The families 6th sense was a nice add to the story. The sex scenes were that. The story is easy to follow, readers will not get lost and the author keeps readers up to dated right away in the book so this can be read as a stand alone if they happened across the book in a store.
The flow of the story seemed a little choppy at times and the inner monologue dragged on a little too much. Action would have been better than Nikki and the giant Lars Ecklund endless inner thoughts. Trust me you will never forget how tall this guy is. It is mentioned non stop.
The author seemed to think readers needed to be remind about his unique looks. It wasn't needed and was a distraction.
Since this is the first book I have read by Lisa Childs I am not sure I will pick up another one of her books. Lisa Childs repeats herself way to many times in the book for me to enjoy it. I am smart enough to remember he is giant with amazing blue eyes and can't walk though a normal doorway because he is so big.
Thank you Netgalley for the advance Copy

Lisa Childs was born on 31 October, a Halloween birthday predestined her to a life of writing suspense. Born soft-spoken into a big, boisterous family where only he who speaks loudest is heard, she learned early to express herself through the written word. She has been writing since she could first form sentences and transfer them to paper with crayon. Her first books revolved around the antics of the family dog until she discovered Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. Then writing mysteries became second nature for her. At 11 she won her first writing award and was interviewed by the local newspaper. That story's plot revolved around a kidnapping, probably something she wished on any of her six siblings.
Lisa lives in Michigan, with a husband who provides loving support with praise and extra housecleaning duty, and two beautiful daughters who share her love of the written word. During the day she is a part-time insurance agent and full-time wife and mother. When night falls and fog from their 15-acre swamp wraps around their house, she becomes the focused writer, spinning stories she hopes her readers will enjoy. She enjoys the mix of suspense and romance. Readers are welcome to contact Lisa at PO Box 139, Marne, MI 49435.
